WotC has published a "Dungeons & Dragons Dice Roller" it works online but can also be downloaded.
You can roll any dice you might need and add modifiers to the rolls.
The only negative point is that you can't directly send the logs to other people. To do that you will have to cut & paste the log into a normal e-mail
You can find the program here: Dungeons & Dragons Dice Roller

Chapter Twenty-One - Part 2
The men did not move much during the next couple of weeks. They just could not do it with the lady acting as she was. Both Oggelly and Feladin managed to see their friend in the little elf form, but the true sightings were rare. They mostly went out hunting to make certain that they had food, and to leave the lady alone.
Sylvia willingly took care of the camp. The horse was well tended with its entire coat regularly brushed along with flowers placed in its mane and tail. Complete meals were managed as the plants were further tested. She took apart one of her dresses and made a new shirt for each of the men.
The final details are handled with our heroes.

The upcoming, new campaign setting Ebberron will of course have it's own, special monsters that call that world their home. In this new article of the Gearing up for Ebberron we are presented with a few of these monsters unique to that campaign (at least unique until you decide to adopt them for your own campaings ) - 4 to be exact.
As a little bonus each of the monsters is commented upon by Matt Smith. These coments give a good summary of the dangers and tactics each of these monsters can present, so don't skip them totally.

Chapter Twenty-One - Part 1
The men did not wake the lady, but both commented about her sleeping late. Sylvia generally slept the least. Oggelly thought nothing about staying up all night; he had again stayed up most of the night tending to both the dragon skin and the deer skin. The minstrel would however also lay around all day if he considered nothing pressing. Feladin was often the first to bed and almost always the last to rise. He tried to maintain some type of order to his day, and saw nothing wrong with going to bed once everything he had to do was done then not getting up until he felt there was something he needed to do. Sylvia was the one who stayed up late to read her magic text in order to work out some problem she felt could be solved with a few more minutes of mental work. She was also the one who rose early to exercise and take a private bath. Truthfully, both of the men felt it was a good day to relax, so actually envied the lady for being able to start without them.
The problem that Sylvia has been feeling come upon her reveals itself fully.

Chapter Twenty - Part 3
The three thought to remove the skin from the beast. Truthfully, it started as a normal thought to preparing to eat the animal. To get at the meat, the skin had to be removed. It became a major operation, but using some rope brought by Sylvia from the tower, truthfully for the purpose of making a clothesline to dry her dresses after washing, and the strength of the horse the carcass of the huge reptile was secured between two trees and the work was started.
There was gold present. Oggelly saw the glitter and picked up a piece of the metal. Suddenly all three were searching around the stand of trees for places where the dragon had rested. Some more of the metal was found. The total was short being a pound, but the three went back to the carcass feeling that their efforts to be less stupid than they originally estimated.
Details are handled as events move forward.

Chapter Twenty - Part 2
There was no lack of fresh water. The mountains soared to a height where snow was a constant sight. The summer warmth was however finally reaching the peaks allowing for a short period of melting. There were cut channels in the rock where part of the eternal snowcap collected to form lovely streams. A torrent of water thus came from the summits supplying the plants with a necessary basic to finish their growth before it again turned too cold for life.
Our heroes take on a challenge worth bragging about.
